A year ago, at Easter, we confirmed our decision to accept the invitation to join the team in European CEF. We have had a great fourteen years working in the North East Ulster area with CEF of Ireland. Please pray with the local committee that God will provide them with a Local Worker soon.

In our new role we hope to be a help and encouragement to the work in North West Europe, especially to the country/team leaders. The eleven countries that make up this area are Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We are currently on deputation and the Lord has provided us with 70% of the total regular monthly support that CEF have asked us to raise. Please pray with us that the Lord will provide the remainder of the financial support and that we will be patient to wait for His perfect timing. Also pray that many more will commit to pray for us and for the work in North West Europe.

We have been very challenged to pray as Jesus commands us in Matthew 9: “…when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest.”

Please join us in this earnest prayer for the countries of North West Europe so that more workers will go and proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to many children and young people who are lost sheep without Him.
